Breakfast Table Centerpiece


When it's the winter months and every day seems to call for comfort food, I love having a tablecloth on the table all the time.  It just seems to invite you to sit down and eat.  However, I don't want a centerpiece to block the view so we can easily visit.

This little rooster planter is just the right size for our breakfast table.  Big enough to have some inpact and yet small enough to allow for ample placesettings and food at meal time.


 I love the black and white transferware plates on the wall, so I thought I would tie the arrangement in with some black and white toile ribbon.


 Ivy, a candle and of course some feathers.  (Yes, I am still having fun with them.)




I also added a small wood fiber flower to add even more nature.

Nice to light the candle and enjoy a quiet meal with the hubs.  Makes the most simple fare seem grand.

I am sorry I am slow making the rounds for TTT this week.  My son and grandson will be heading home on Thurs. morning, so I am soaking up every minute with them that I possibly can.  I know you all understand. 
I am linking to the following parties:

Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesdays
Judy at DIY by Design for Winter Blues
Paula and Patti at Ivy and Elephants for What's It Wednesday

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  32. I love the centerpiece! You can't go wrong using chickens in the kithen- lol!

    I have black and white toile curtains in my breakfast room. I've thought about looking for chair cushions in the same fabric, but that can be a bit pricey. It didn't occur to me to use it in a centerpiece. Thanks for sharing :)

  35. Family should always come first! I love how you tied in the bow (love that ribbon) with the plates on the wall. You know, we have gotten so relaxed in our middle age...we eat with TV trays and only sit at the table when we have guests! Don't tell anyone:)
